Work brings me to Johnson county for a couple days a week. I've been staying at the Ashley-Drake for a month now. Kim and her family are so good to me. I feel like an honored guest. Each evening I turn in my menu for breakfast: what I want, when I want it. It is a lovely, comfortable place. Every detail is so well thought out, even the smell of the sheets, and waking up to coffee brewing. Some evenings I just sit on the porch swing. Others I may take a walk on the Greenway or head downtown. Tonight I sat in the garden in back. Simply lovely.
